    Default New Cattletonia Hybrid

    This is the first blooming out of this batch. I am pretty sure that this is a cross with cattletonia maui maid, and some random broughtonia. I'll have to look up the cross number. It turned out to be a very good bloom. Enjoy

    Right on, there are so many Ctnas at my new job, but none of them demand a glance like that does.

    Thanks everyone. I am just lucky that I caught the bloom. I have been so busy lately, and what not. It could have easily have been passed over by me. Things have been so hectic around here lately! We just opened up a new business, and all of that jazz. (Had to get rid of one of our partners) Plus we have been having problem after problem with our new house. I believe I will have a stroke if we ever get to move into it in the near future. Moral of that story....... Don't ever have friends be your contractor when you are very capable of doing it yourself! No matter how good their intentions are! At least it's Friday

    Nice, electric color! Did you make the cross, Aaron? I noticed that you hadn't been around much lately. Good luck with the new business...and with your home!
